    Quick scientific question. If a woman fornicates with a gay man explicitly, does he get an arousal?

    M*W: If you must. It was not intended to offend anyone. I have many homosexual friends, and I would do nothing to hurt them in any way. I don't know why the eyes become deepset. I was not the first to notice it, but I was told about it by a gay friend. If you must report someone, why don't you report the homophobes?

    M*W: I should have looked up some references before I posted. The following references are related to ophthalmological conditions in homosexual males:

    Yes, most have one or two.

    Huh?

    And what of homosexual women? Do their eyes bug out instead?

    But seriously..

    I think such notions were believed in the 'olden days' when doctors attempted to "diagnose" and 'cure' homosexuality because it was stupidly deemed to be an illness.

    Ermm a lot of our friends are homosexual and none of them have the "deep set eyes" of which you speak. They have dragged my husband and I to gay bars in the past on nights out (so long ago now lol) and no, deep set eyes was not prevalent amongst homosexual men.

    The deep set eyes notion is just that, a belief that homosexuality could be diagnosed by looking at facial features. This was probably prevalent during the times that homosexuality was also viewed as a mental illness.

    And what would deep set eyes have to do with HIV?

    Ermm the links speak mostly about HIV and illnesses related to HIV. It is not synonamous with homosexuals alone. If a straight person has HIV, they have the same chances of having the symptoms listed above.

    That may be true.

    Can you think of any obvious exceptions? The Mongol Empire was not, in itself, a "civilization" (they weren't into cities). The old Greeks and Romans: check. Old Egypt: don't know - don't seem all that hetero, stylewise. The English empire: check. The Chinese civilizations, various: check.

    Drawing a blank, here, on great cultures that didn't feature a strong presence of gay men as cultural leaders or establishers.

    I think Jeff Foxworthy has a list of characteristics that identify men as either gay or married - "If you sleep in a bed with seven pillows and a frilly comforter, you are either gay, or married". Maybe we could go with that.

    Another tack: can anyone think of a set of characteristics that differentiates evangelical Christian men from homosexuals?

    How would he be fornicating without arousal?

    Even heterosexual men can be arroused by their own bodies. There's always a degree of narcisism in sexual arrousal. But, generally speaking, I do not become arroused by my body. For starters, arrousal is about the excitement of what's to come and for many (men especially) about see something new. Just because I have a penis, doesn't negate the sexual excitement generated by a new encounter (likewises, a man who has had sex with several women ALREADY knows exactly what to expect and what he's seeing, but still gets arroused anyway).

    Fornication does not speak to ones mind, but to one's actions. Arrousal is a physical thing. I can still become erect as a result of the right physical stimulation, no matter WHAT my sexual proclivity may be.
